It all started at Elliot’s (Grand)Papa’s birthday lunch yesterday.
Elliot and his cousins were running around looking for something to do when they found the playdough. After the excitement of a birthday cake, birthday candles were the logical addition to their lumps of dough.
Excuse the flour…
I promised Elliot we would make playdough at home the next day. I even went to the store at 9pm and hauled home a giant bag of flour so I would be prepared.
We made the jell-o playdough recipe from this site (omitting the cream of tartar because I was sure I had some, then couldn’t find it, and as if I was walking to the store AGAIN in the pouring rain at 7.30am), and it turned out well.
I pulled out birthday candles, spoon, knife, small spatula and some silicone cupcake liners. Elliot made this awesome giant layered birthday cake. Future pastry chef?
